Let me be clear. I'm a total ham... but aside from the satire, the support-sentiment is warm and serious.

I'm very proud of team A&J. And all of DUP's leadership!

When We Have Food Replicators 2

Written on Planet Furry
 
Captain's JohnnyKirk's log:
 
When our hairy alien friends have
more time and good health for  
 
grooming or restless legs syndrome  
while attempting sleep, not overly hungry
calling my ship for aid every time I orbit over

Or sending me space raid siren pleas for help  
because they have such simple alien brains †  
comprehending little beyond hormones †and warp 1. . . †  
††
Barely reaching warp the frenzied ambassadors  †
feast-ively flying into action upon hearing  
the Accord that is Pavlov's Bell . . .  
††
When there are no more furry friends †  
††
Well ...  
 
I guess that's when the SOS calls finally end!

Deep Love

What more can really be said besides that we're here
expressing ourselves to the masses, or at least a lot
of people who call themselves 'Creatives and poets" So
there is no other thing to do but to pay respect to the
originators of a place free to judge and smile at the
same time. We are the crowd. The folks that speak
real loud, the ones that went out of their way to seek
something where expression rules, and here we are.
The expressionists looking to be loved

a blackwolf ringing my door bell

There is a blackwolf ringing my door bell
Banging on my door and it wants in
Howling it revolutionAL howl
To rectify my mistakes and guide me to a better path
There's a blackwolf ringing my door bell
With fur as beautiful as a genus of flowering trees (Melia)
Forever showering me with the sweetest of compliments
There's a blackwolf ringing my door bell
It comes running and running me down
Chasing me down the stream of juvenile 66 butterflies
Chasing me into a poetic tragedy
With words so shakespear-sweet
Sending me into Ely down the cambridgeshire
There's a blackwolf ringing my door bell

poet Anonymous

We have defeated our trolls
give me a beat to a drum cold or a cucumber roll
already started partying and sniggering
Iím so happy to be here
might pass you and put one in that flower bowl
but not on that imposters trail
Iíd have not come back as John Kramer with my picture
one undercover agent has gotta bail
as we all have evil and good inside us
I can tell you which one he has more his thumb on the scale
still running with it between my legs
because in hospital, nearly lost my tail apparently
I asked J can you give him a K, he will take the L
Many have battled me, and I never hurt a single legend actually
only up a curb towards me they came and fell
Iím weak, like a fine bottle of wine that hasnít been ageing well
High up on that cloud 9 I was on
turns out I was wrong
Iíd take all their Corona Virus
and trade it for a punctured lung

Iíd like to give a shout-out to Grace
itís been a pleasure talking on that thread
Iím still on no topic
telling them about my day
so you probably wonít remember ever seeing me
in the Good Nights Await hotel
but I caught you near the tables of knives, glass and aluminium
talking about swords and mirrors
as it was the last poem of yours I saw

Canít just be writing Ďbout sex
I havenít much of that intellect
because Miss Subs voice alone could get me into bed
deleted the private messages before sent, over five thousand
Donít want too much attention with poems
what other way can I shout Ďem?
Internet weirdo that needs to leave the hedge Iím in
outside her address and then
wondering how the fuck I say ďhiĒ without sweating
do I offer a wedding ring?
Guess you could say Iím yours
without a wink face because thatís just too insane
Iím saying Iím not Jessiís stalker
His name is Henry Walker

He is our beloved moderator
see how that poem never got any likes over Eamon?
Never accepted his gift once
because I knew it was a dream in an instant
like cryptville patients just told us
I said socks scare me
pictures on them, someone having myself on a bike
but dropped I did the brown junk food bag from McDonaldís in Leppís arms
as soon as he pulled them out
putting the lighter toward the cigarette to spark
So was in a helicopter

Blue Lotus

Hide away, my psyche
Donít risk getting feisty
The World wonít understand
Your voice, most likely banned

Wrap it in some verse
Ambiguous or terse
Authority wonít notice
Not unlike Blue Lotus

If you dare to strike a nerve
The nation-state will self-preserve
Except for those who they dismiss
Already on the crazy list

Poetry, Deep Underground
Is, in a word: Profound
The powers who rule over us
Already think that we are nuts!

Deep Underground

Canít go anywhere but cyberspace?
Visit the place where poets come to write,
Distancing yourself socially to not catch a case?
Race down to the Underground and see the site.
(Or is it see the sights?)
 
Despite what the world is going through,
Here youíll see and hear the voices of dreamers,
Filling each other with hope trying to be SOAP,
Thatís the Sum Of All Parts for the cleaners.
(Shameless plug ^)
 
Dig Deep like the roots of a tree in this Poetry,
Talk to the poets and ask how they wrote Ďem,
Check out the comps, groups and forums,
Oh, and make sure you have a good modem.
(90s kids will get that one)
 
Deep Underground Poetry is an awesome place to be,
You get to connect with other poets, writers and artists,
Share your verse and rhyme itíll be a greatÖexperience,
But give it your best because DUP be the hardest.

My line unwrapped

Words all jumbled, like spagetti    
pen at start, now I'm ready  
word of love to impress a lady  
melt, her cold, cold, heart †  
††  
She that grass and you the rake †  
try to groom, †to ordered state †  
polishing to delicate or intimate †  
somethin smokin, somethin tart †  
† †
But she's the bitch that has you fettered †  
writing lines that cant be bettered †  
hook, line and sinker †  
in a pose, like Rodin's Thinker †  
no stop button, when you start †  
† †
For that mile was so uncharted †  
hesitant you stumble thwarted†  
that leap of faith, in rhyme or pro's †  
"And that's Rap", my soul exposed †  
mindset all, in that impart  

Now I'm here I sit and reason  
for that "cool" I bin seeking  
Aladdins cave of treasures gleaming  
to change my life and sense of meaning
self emancipation in that form of art
 
By adding DU to your shopping cart

Deep Underground

( a Tribute that tells a story through poem titles from 21 Deep members )
 
 
Itís now one year forward since the scourge;
Comes the dawning of the first new Light
Through a crimson sky, the colours of time.
 
We are no different despite the purge.
The cleansing of being tethered flight
Beyond of what seemed to be a lifetime.
 
Lockdown cities, street by empty street,
Isolation by isolation,
Considered a privilege if we survived.
 
A hint of sadness, weíll never meet,
Emerged from charity sedations.
But almost harmless doesnít mean we tried.
 
Almost wanted had a second chance
If youíre bracing for the unveiling;
Itís just enough to make you stay alive.
 
A wild child in moonlight for this dance,
The hum that ripples a song failing,
Here Nature is speaking to save her hive.
